About Elder Lawelder law attorney

The term “Elder Law” can be misleading. Elder law attorneys advocate on behalf of the elderly, the infirm, people needing long-term care, and their families. The field of elder law, while it can include estate planning, is broader than just traditional estate planning. Elder law focuses on the elderly or disabled and their current and future needs while they are alive. It centers on taking steps to ensure the client lives his or her life with dignity and control over the circumstances of his or her life. In establishing a plan with the client, an elder law attorney assists the older or disabled person to achieve client goals while alive, not simply to benefit heirs following death.
